Lesson 1133 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks



Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. Helen Keller

Along with fall, change is in the air. Like many others in the tech world, we got caught in the HP re-org and find ourselves, for the first time in a long, long time, on the outside looking in. It’s a shock, but we’ll deal – trust me, in this house we’ve been knocked down before and every time we’ve still managed to get back up.

We’ll do it again.

On the home front, Isabelle has one eye that has partially reopened. This is good news, a half-blind chicken with assistance might be able to live. I went out to her crate with the intent of seeing how she would do reintegrated into the flock, but she started shaking her head and making some very wet noises. That’s not a good sign. Soooo, she’s still in isolation. I’ll see how she progresses this weekend. No one has given up on her yet.

And just as a shout-out, our friends; Nestor and Tori who were in that horrific car crash on the West coast are both having a rough time. We think of you guys often and not a minute goes by that we don’t send healing wishes your way. Stay tough, we’re all rooting for your team.

This weekend is filled with a conference, writing, soccer games, and pumpkins. Kind of looking forward to it.




 Be safe and see you all next week.
